Hi Anna, I saw your beautiful macros of water at Macro Minds so I thought I'd pop in your gallery. This one really stood out to me, so simple, clear, delicate.
Is this a wild flower or garden? Such nice clarity....Very nice gallery..Pam :) #6357567

Anna Diederich August 24, 2008

Thank you so much for stopping by, Pam! This is a garden. It's some kind of bulb and I usually see it when the tulips are blooming. #6358644
